    BELLEVILLE, Ill. -- Three people were found stabbed to death Wednesday morning inside an Illinois beauty salon.
    snip
    Delaney identified the victims as 62-year-old Michael Cooney, owner of Michael's Salon; and sisters Dorothy Bone, 82, and Doris Fischer, 79, both customers who lived in Belleville.

    Bone's body was found in a hallway, and Fischer and Cooney were found in a room where Cooney washed customers' hair, police told the Belleville-News Democra.

    Cooney, who also lived in the two-story brick home that housed the salon, was stabbed multiple times, Delaney said. He could not say how many times the sisters were stabbed

    Triple-murder trial delayed after prosecutors balk at judge’s ruling

    The writing was on the wall of the courthouse holding cell where Samuel L. Johnson waited for the start of his murder trial in the killings of three people at a Belleville salon.

    The words written were not immediately made public, but St. Clair County Associate Judge Julie Gomric ruled that prosecutors could not present the messages found Monday afternoon to the jury. Prosecutors decided to ask an appellate court to review Gomric's ruling.

    The appeal could delay the trial for up to two years.

    The messages also could result in additional charges, attorneys acknowledged on Tuesday.

    This article really explains the situation with the salon owner victim and the suspect. It explains the possible motive. It's a shame some of the evidence against him is weak, including the jailhouse snitches. The phone records of Johnson, calling the victim the days before and the
    day of the killing are very compelling.

    I hope the jury finds him guilty, but it does sound like at least one other person was involved. Someone had to drive the victim's car.
